Sorry, misunderstanding: 5D2 should work with EOS Webcam Utility alone.
Camera <-> EOS Webcam Utility <-> Video conference software or recording software. OBS is required if software doesn't work with EOS Webcam Utility. One of those programs is MS Teams.

As workaround (as long as you have troubles with EOS Webcam Utility) you can use OBS to grab liveview screen from EOS Utility.

Outdated, not very precise and false information in this clip:
- Covering beta which is outdated. Newer version solved compatibility problem with EOS Utility.
- Canon indeed offers different links for supported cams but they are linked to the very same file. Same procedure for Beta and Final.
- Not all video conference software will just do with Webcam Utility alone. You still need tools like OBS to make EOS Webcam Utility work with MS Teams, for example.

Don't own a 5D2 so you have to do some testing on your own.
Have you tried to play around with Liveview modes in Canon menu? 5D2 has a very odd way of handling liveview/movie mode selection.

Are you able to use liveview in EOS Utility (the one without "Web")?

I hope you can do without graphics.
Write speed needed for H.264 modes: Manual
Write speed needed for MLV modes: Shown in bottom lines while adjusting resolution. Or RAW Calculator
Or build your own:
Horizontal x vertical resolution x frame rate x bit depth x compression ratio / 8 = Bandwidth in Bytes/s.

Compression ratio = 1 without compression.
Compressio used: Typical between 0.4 and 0.6, depending on scene.

Sorry, but 1620x1080 is all you can get in liveview mode. Playback works but that doesn't help.

What happens with extracted nightly build content on card?

Remove battery
Insert card
Insert battery
Close compartment doors
Try to power on camera.

Any activity?

What happens without card inserted?
What happens with spare clean card (formated in PC)?

General Help Q&A / Re: New to Videography and ML (canon 600d)?
« on: December 28, 2020, 01:39:48 PM »
If you want to use RAW/MLV video recording:
- No SD overclocking. SD interface bandwidth is 25 MByte/s (theoretical limit).
- No pretty crop_rec modes available.
- MLV resolution for continuous recording is restricted to around 900x500.

1. Not within ML. OBS can do but you have to crop.
2. You should never say never but for the foreseeable future: Nope, don't hold your breath.

35
Please do not crosspost. Worse: Doing so with multiple accounts.

Not possible with ML.
You may want to use some tool like OBS to create a proper ratio but you have to crop.

This test would work with cam's bootflag set.
If ML was uninstalled properly cam's bootflag is gone and this test won't work.

a1ex?

Just tested the link for Portable Display Test autoexec.bin and it is working.
Yes, for this particular test autoexec.bin should be sufficient.

Prepare card with EOScard (Windows) or MacBoot (macOS). Check card, delete all files and directories (but do not format). Copy portable display test autoexec.bin to card.

Remove battery, insert card. Insert battery.
You do not have to power up cam. Just close compartment door ...
Results?

In short: You can't get 10 bit H.264 recording because there is no hardwired processing unit to do so. And Digic 5 processor won't be able to do it in Real Time.

I'm afraid both lenses won't be able to provide distance info thus crashing at this point couldn't be prevented. a1ex?

Man, what a mess! :-/
Go to Help tab and show version and build data

Wondering if Canon was bought by Apple lately because I have an "Apple Event" feeling about all of this:

Boy, how to get excited about reinventing the wheel ... if it is a wheel, after all.

Actually a very good question. Same problem here. Monitor will fetch anything and just tell "1080i60".
I tried to use an (cheapo) HDMI-USB-capture and looking into OBS to see input value. See screenshot for an Elgato device:

But my card doesn't support that, custom properties is just not there.

Looking good. Install issue with high-capacity cards should not occur anymore. Install routine has changed.
There are a few things left to try but I'm quite convinced they won't change anything. As far as I can see you did nothing wrong.

Waiting for a1ex to take over.
